Egg Nog Coffee Cake Muffins

Egg Nog Coffee Cake Muffins: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

I have always been a fan of coffee cakes and muffins. So the idea of a coffee cake muffin is prefect for me.

These coffee cake muffins are full of flavor. They not only have egg nog in the muffin, but there is an egg nog glaze drizzled on top. There is also a delicious streusel topping not just on the top but in the middle as well.
